Maggie’s boring workaholic life and focus on her obnoxious ex is grinding her down. A friend’s advice sends her to Madame Evangeline’s high-end dating service 1 Night Stand. She hopes to find some fun, a date, and va-va-voom sex…not necessarily in that order. At least she will get out of her apartment for one hot night! Because, yes, she is just that desperate for a change, and there is that secret fantasy she’s been wanting to try out….
As Ian turns forty, his day job as writer of steamy erotica and night job as part-time Dom has him worried he will never have a “normal” relationship. With his particular kinky quirks, what woman would consider him husband material? Madame Eve is pretty good at her own job, are these two a match in a million or just a one night flash in the pan?
She gaped in horror. Five emails from Madame Evangeline. Five! What about her message had captured the matchmaker’s attention enough to have her keep trying to contact Maggie? The spanking stuff! Oh, jeez. That had to be it. Nothing else about her basic info could possibly draw a stranger’s interest.
Fingers shaking, she opened the first message.
I’m so pleased you contacted me, Ms. Malone. I’m sure that I can find someone perfect for you. Please email me back so we can discuss this further.
Palms sweating, she opened the next message.
I’ve done a basic background check on you, Maggie, as I’m sure you’re aware I do for all my clients. Your websites are quite well done, unique. I could see your special imaginative flare. I noticed it in your query message as well. I’m positive I can find the perfect match for you. Please contact me as soon as possible.
Maggie drew in a nervous breath. Madame Evangeline had mentioned imaginative things in her original email, certainly meaning the fantasies. How embarrassing. Yet she opened the third message.
I know exactly what you need, my dear Maggie. You need time away from your work, time to satisfy your secret desires, time to let a very special man attend to your every wish. I eagerly await your response.
Satisfy her secret desires? Let a special man attend to her every wish? Oh, yes! Need thrummed through her, making her squirm in her desk chair.
Heart racing, she opened the fourth message.
What you need, dearest Maggie, is a special night at one of the Castillo Resorts and Hotels. I’m thinking the one in Maui would please you most. The more I study the websites you design, the more sure I am of your sensuality, of the type of man who could please you. I look forward to you contacting me soon.
How could the other woman know about her preference for Maui? How could this unknown woman sense so much about her? See how much of herself she put into each of the website designs? It was eerie…exciting, too.
She gathered her courage and opened the final email, one sent only an hour ago.
I truly believe, my dear Maggie Malone, that one special night giving free rein to your delicious fantasies will make a new woman of you. Every woman has secret dreams, delicious desires. But not every woman has someone who can help her fulfill those dreams and desires. You must let me help you. I will find you the perfect man for such a special night. You must trust me. Please contact me today.
Maggie swallowed hard. She could hardly breathe; her stomach fluttered with anticipation. If only she could take this chance and step way beyond her comfort zone. If only she could, in fact, have a night where anything close to her fantasies came true. She wasn’t even sure where these wicked dreams had come from. Did she need to stop reading so much erotica, especially those with a certain lean to them? Had she been surfing too many daring websites and wondering about some of what she’d read? Was she just too darn curious about things that would give her mother a heart attack just knowing what her daughter was longing to try?
Night Owl Reviews
Maggie is your typical workaholic. All work and no play. To make matters worse, she is still thinking of her ex months later. Her friend decides to take matters in her own hands. Having found success with Madame Evangeline’s high end dating service that led to her true love she wants to help out others. Apprehensive at first and then down right scared, Maggie sends the email and goes to her one night stand.
Ian is nearly forty and wondering what do I have to show for it? He writes steamy books and works part-time as a Dom dealing out punishments to his clients. What he wants is a woman to love and to be loved in return. With his kinks, would any woman ever see past this? When contacted about Maggie from Madame Evangeline, Ian was intrigued.
This is one hot, short read that really packs a punch. Ms. Kaye establishes great characterization and emotions in Maggie and Ian from the beginning. I loved both of them separately and then together. While the sex is beyond hot and Maggie’s wish is granted, the emotions between Ian and Maggie run deep. My only complaint is that I felt the story was too short. I realize that this was a one night stand and it was written as such, but I would like to have seen more of them together.
I highly recommend Maggie’s Secret Wish for anyone that wants a quick hot read about two people that were destined for each other. This will not be my last One Night Stand. Great job. http://www.nightowlreviews.com/nor/Reviews/Marika-reviews-Maggies-Secret-Wish-by-Starla-Kaye.aspx
